These are really quick and simple.
by: Brianna D.

They only take 10 min OR LESS because you melt the chocolate for 20 sec. and you freeze them for 5 min. the rest of the time is for making them. And they can take less than 10 min. It depends on how quick you are.

Andes Creme de Menthe is a smooth mint candy. It's made of 3 layers: chocolate, mint, chocolate. I would try to find a smooth mint flavored candy not crushed peppermints. If you can't find the candy just use chocolate and peppermint extract. You will have the same desired result. Hope this helps!

I don't think that would work. Andys mint chips are a chocolate and mint bar, that have been crushed. If you can find any chocolate and mint bars, I would try to crush them. And use them instead of the Andes mint chips.

If not:
1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Set aside.

2. Put 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 teaspoon of veg. oil in a microwave safe bowl. Place in the microwave for 20 sec,
or until melted. (Stir every 10 sec.)

3. When the chocolate chips are melted add 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract.
(You can add more or less peppermint extract, it depends on how minty that you want the cookies to be. Be careful! The extract gan get very powerful, if you add to much, so just start with 1/8 of a teaspoon and work your way up!)

4. Dip both sides of the Ritz crackers into the chocolate. Set on lined cookie sheet. Then put sprinkles on top.

5. After you are done, put the the cookies into the freezer for 5 minutes. Take them out and enjoy!

these look really yummy, but in NZ we don't have mint chips - are they like mint sweets (candy)? Could you crush candy canes?
